Rumor: Nikon D4000 DSLR


Email Page | Comments

Speculation has began about a potential Nikon D4000 - a baby brother to the Nikon D5000. The Nikon D40 has been discontinued, the Nikon D60 is getting old, especially in light of newer releases from Canon and Sony, so at some point Nikon needs to introduce a new body at an entry-level DSLR price point.

Below are a list of rumors regarding the Nikon D4000 DSLR, newest first. Please rate how credible you believe these to be, and feel free to add your own comments/thoughts. If you have any more information, please email us at or click Rumors Wanted. We'll continue to add new rumors to this page as we come across them.

Thom Hogan Prediction

Date: 7/14/2009
Source: Thom Hogan

Rating: 2/5, Votes: 1

After the recent and likely fictional Nikon Roadmap Leak (see Nikon Roadmap in our forums for the full translation), Thom Hogan has put together his speculated "Possible Nikon Roadmap".

Note Thom does have good sources, and a pretty good track record when it comes to predicting Nikon products, so his version of the roadmap is probably best described as "educated speculation".

Thom speculates early 2010 for either the D2000 or D4000 release. He expects the D4000 to split the D3000 and D5000 features (e.g. add video but not flip screen).

His full roadmap with a lot more background info and explanation can be found by clicking the source link below.

D60 Replacement Due August

Date: 7/1/2009
Source: NR

Rating: 3.5/5, Votes: 2

NR is reporting that a retailer has tipped them off that a D60 replacement is due early August.

It's well know there are Nikon events scheduled for July 30th and August 4th, so if correct, that would make the August 4th date the DSLR/lens announcements, and July 30th the Coolpix announcements.

July 30 or August 4

Date: 6/17/2009
Source: kamerabild.se

Rating: 2.5/5, Votes: 2

According to the google translation of a page on kamerabild.se, Nikon have set press conferences for July 30 and August 4, suggesting that 2 DSLR's will be announced a week apart (seems strange, the D3 and D300 were announced together). They are suggesting the cameras will be the D300s, and possibly a D60 replacement (the rumored D4000?)

Thom Hogan Speculates

Date: 6/2/2009
Source: Thom Hogan

Rating: 2.8/5, Votes: 4

On his home page (see source link below - if it's dropped off his home page, look under May 19th 2009 in his archive), Thom Hogan speculates about a potential D4000 (the key word being speculates). He suggests a cut down D5000 - drop the tilting LCD, more limited AF and a few other missing features.
